5 Editorial It is in order for editors to offer explanations, not excuses. We feel thait the obviously uneven quality of the individual contributions in this issue may give rise to criticism which we should prefer, as far as possible, to forestall. First, we wouHd like to point ouft that we consider the ' literary ' section of any school magazine fulfils a valuable function in giving an opportunity to boys with a very special aptitude or interest. Next, we feel that while trying to encourage an interest in writing for its own sake and attempting to build up this part of the magazine, we can- not afford to aim beyond our means. Finally, we would emphasize that what appears here has been wrifbten not as set composition work but specially for this year book: certainly, in some cases, items of higher literary value could have been collected from English Com- position books but we feel very strongly this should not be the source of our material. In conclusion, we would offer our thanks to alll our contributors for their time and trouble. May they consider ftheir labours well spent! EDITOR.

6 ' Au Revoir ' Alt the end of this Term, the School will be losing through retire- ment the services of two members of the Staff. Miss E. M. Smith joined the Staff at the outbreak of World War 1]I as Form Mistress of Form II. Since that time she has been in charge of this Form and has guided these young pupils with firm but kindly control through their second year of Saltus School life. In after school duties(, ,Miss Smith has ' conscientiously taken a fehare, and twice a week has presided over Detention classes — often not the most congenial and inspiring of tasks. Mr. J. H. Kerry came to Siailtus from Somers College in 1934. He has been responsible for the History syllabus throughout the School and has done a major portion of the teaching of this subject as well as that of Book-keeping. Also, the meticulous care with which he has performed office work has relieved two successive Headmasters of a considerable burden. In extra-curricular activities he has presided over the Debating Sociefty throughout his career, and many present and Old Boys will remember with enjoyment the interesting subjects, the Mock Trials, Hat and Balloon debates, which have taken place un- der his guidance. It is also pleasing to note that several of the most fluent and promising amongst the younger public speakers in the Colony no doubt had their initiation into this art in Ithe Debating Society. I am sure that we all wish these two valued members of the Staff a happy retirement and, in bidding them ' Au Revoir ' , we trust that they will have pleasant memories of Saltus.
